Plaint



Is anything—anything!—as heartbreaking
as a misunderstanding?

As the young girl who thinks
the world is warm, honest, and fair
and will take care of her,
keep her safe?

As the arrogant world that assumes
this tiny brief creature coalesced of desire and passion
will come and go without reaching deep into its stony core
and wrenching it apart?
